My name is Palmira Reyes and I began my teaching career in 1995. I received my undergraduate degree from the University of California, Berkeley and my teaching credential from California State University Los Angeles. My teaching experience has all been in the elementary grades and I have taught K, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4/5 combo. Despite having experience in multiple grades, I consider myself a life-long learner and am always looking and researching for new and different strategies to implement in my craft. Learning is not and should never be static. I try to instill this concept of being a life-long learner in my students and share my excitement with them whenever I discover a something new to enhance our learning.
